Hi I’m new here.
Just wanting some information about notifying the DVLA regarding palpitations.
Firstly I’m not sure if what I have been experiencing is due to palpitations or not but suspect it is, and have had echocardiograms for a haematology condition which I am having chemo. I have alerted my consultant over possible palpitations so on my records.
I am now concerned as I have just read that, surprisingly, you need to notify the DVLA. I have looked at the .gov.uk site and download the forms. The thing that bothers me is the third question which seems to imply that if you suffer from certain symptoms one of which is palpitations then you are unsafe to drive! I am of course worried that in notifying something which really is not causing debilitating problems I am at risk of loosing my licence.
My consultant doesn't seem to think I need to notify as they are not causing any fainting or dizziness, and she has said I’m fit to drive. I'm not sure as the DVLA site says you must!
Has anyone had any experience with this?
I think they must have change the forms in recent years.
